The official website for the television anime adaptation of the Fate/Extra game began streaming the series' third promotional video on Saturday. The anime, titled Fate/Extra Last Encore, will premiere "next winter." (Note: The official video on the website is region-locked to Japan.)
The website also revealed a new visual and the two main cast members. The anime will star Atsushi Abe as Hakuno Kishinami and Sakura Tange as Saber.
Akiyuki Simbo (March comes in like a lion, Puella Magi Madoka Magica) is the chief director of the anime at the studio SHAFT. Yukihiro Miyamoto (Puella Magi Madoka Magica, Arakawa Under the Bridge) is serving as series director. Masaaki Takiyama (Tokyo ESP, Nyaruko: Crawling with Love!) is designing the characters based on Rco Wada's (Wadarco) original designs. Type-Moon and Marvelous are credited for the original game and original Fate/stay night creator Kinoko Nasu is handling series composition. Satoru Kousaki (Bakemonogatari, The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya) is composing the music.
Marvelous Entertainment and Type-Moon released the Fate/Extra PlayStation Portable game in Japan in 2010. Aksys Games released the game in North America in November 2011. The Fate/Extra CCC companion game shipped in Japan on the PSP in March 2013.
